The Kumars (new)

The Kumars are back!

Forced to down-size as a result of the economic downturn and Dad's warehouse burning down, the Kumars are now living in a rented flat behind Dads new shop in Hounslow, West London. Host Sanjeev has been married and divorced and his ex-wife Bindiya now lives in New York with their daughter Angelina Jolie Kumar. Dad has used the platform of the shop to resurrect the family's talk show, which takes place in the living room of their flat.

Each week three celebrity guests are invited into the Kumars' home. Sanjeev leads the way, and attempts to put on a professional show, but is constantly battling distractions from his raucous Grandmother, his Dad, who sees the show as the perfect way to promote the contents of his shop, and the familys new landlady, who appears whenever she feels like it.

Celebrity guests include: Daniel Radcliffe, Chevy Chase, Harry Shearer, Olivia Colman, Dame Diana Rigg, Brian Blessed and Twiggy.
